This press release was published yesterday. An extract:
Home Secretary Amber Rudd said:
FGM is a devastating act of violence that no woman or girl should ever have to suffer. I am proud that this government is taking world-leading action to tackle this horrendous crime, but there is more to do.
We are still yet to see a perpetrator brought to justice and I am determined to see the first successful prosecution for FGM. And most importantly, we need to protect women and girls by preventing acts of FGM before they happen.
The clear commitment shown by the people gathered here today makes me confident that we can wipe out FGM within a generation.
Along with my colleagues, and all those involved in this initiative, I don’t give a rat’s arse about MGM.
I may have added a sentence there, but it was implied, I think.
If everyone who read this gave us just £1 – or even better, £1 monthly – we could change the world. Click here to make a difference. Thanks.
